I Call BS!


When I was a kid we played a card game called Bull S#!t. The idea was to be the first to get rid of all your card. The cards were discarded face down in ranking order and you would "call" your card. Another player could call you on it. (I call BS!) If you lied, you picked up the pile. If you didn't, they did.


Parenting is often like this.


We tell ourselves...

I should be able to do it all. I should play with my kids more, have a spotless house, be a more fun mom, feed my family more healthy meals, focus on my kids more, volunteer more. I am failing my kids. I am not good enough.

Or the culture will tell us:

You must alway be patient, never raise your voice, put your kids' needs above your own, give them your undivided attention, be gentle, positive, peaceful...


And since you can't meet these unrealistic standards, you feel like a terrible mom, like your failing your kids.


Well, I call BS!


Your kids do not need a perfect parent; you kids need you. And good enough is good enough. Kids will do what you do.


Your kiddos will learn from the examples you set - Is putting yourself last the model you want them to follow?


So, lead by example

  • Be the best that you can be for your children.

  • Focus on showing them unconditional love.

  • Be emotionally predictable.

  • Do your best and encourage your kids to do the same.

  • Give up the comparison game.

Most of all, enjoy your time together and your time apart.
